2/3 Trains - 135 St. (Day 3, stop #147)

Out: This is not a particularly pretty part of Harlem directly outside this station.  There are some 70’s-looking apartment buildings and other typical tenements.  Harlem Hospital is also right here, with its weird blue and gray cladding.  At the corner there is some guy selling AA and AAA batteries, while someone next to him tries to sell pinwheels.  The people around are almost all black, but there are a few gentrifiers around.

In: Similar to 125, but now there is a middle track bypass.  There are some mosaic tile murals as well as a green and burgundy color scheme here.
